The first time I made this cake, I wasn’t a big fan, but husband loved it, so I made it again. I make it with blood oranges from our trees. The second time I made it, I made an alternation to the recipe. After I remove the blood orange slices from the sugar water, I continue to boil the sugar water until the cake is ready to have it poured over( at least an additional 45 minutes). Made a HUGE difference. Now I like the cake!!
